Subject: A Mother's Tribute
This poignant memoir was written by Lady Pamela Glenconner, mother of Lt. The Hon. Edward Wyndham Tennant, in 1919. The young soldier was only 19 years of age when he was killed in action on 22. September 1916, in the Battle of the Somme. He was nicknamed Bim and was a very wonderful poet who started dictating verse to his mother well before he could read or write. In 1909, his mother privately published some of his childhood poems. Sadly, he had just sent the proofs back to his mother a few days before his death for Worple Flit which was another book of his poetry. This memoir contains most all of his poetry from childhood to his final days during WWI. In this book we learn that Bim was a loving son, a true friend to all who had the good fortune to know him and a brilliant poet who died far too young. Thankfully his poetry survives and provides a compelling view of life before and during the Great War.
